teachings of a modern spiritual adept

Bite size teachings across 30 years.

For 30 years t.k. has offered radical spiritual teachings on the divine nature of non-dual contemplation and realization. Enlightened mind here and now, born from this culture, addressing the issues of this time and place t.k. offers transmission through countless forms - words being one of them. Here are some short pieces from his teachings over the last 30 years.

Ba=bhaga/vagina, Lingta=penis, Khahi = eat

Torma are small offerings made of dough and in Tantric texts called Balingta. Balingta Khahi (from the torma offering of the dakini tsog text): Ba=bhaga/vagina, Lingta=penis, Khahi = eat. The ultimate Torma is appearance held within the offering bowl of awareness. The great torma of the penis of appearance within the vagina of empty, lucent, gnosis … eat, eat this offering. Oh, this ceaseless sexing of appearance and emptiness divested of their tweed underpants, eat it up Tantricas!!! Happy Dakini tsog to one and all! - t.k.

Spiritual life and a life of reason are not at odds. Reason's methods of knowing and describing are accepted as one small aspect of human life. The bureaucratization of human life, knowing, and being by reason leaves a crippled shallow existence. The careful cultivation of deeper aspects of mind and feeling, as methods of knowing and living, is the import of spiritual life. - t.k.

A spiritual school is not a spa retreat where ego is comforted and pampered and made to feel everything is safe and "ok." In this realm of confusions, everything is most definitely not 'ok.' A spiritual school is where one discovers, confronts, and transforms confusion into wisdom and deluded actions into incarnate love. It's hard work, often not fun, but is also the birthplace of meaning. - t.k.

The body, mind, feeling must become delicate, sensitive, silent if they are to encounter that fullness that is stainless and utterly sacred. To embody the experience, and experience the embodiment, of 'that' is the purpose, and obligation, of human life. It is also the place where meaning-fullness is found. - t.k

Every step of the path is an organic living part of the single organism that transforms the lead of delusion into the gold of wisdom bliss. From 'The 4 Thoughts that Turn the Mind' to the subtleties of Tögal they are a single living process, each aspect interpenetrates every other, ultimately none higher or lower, just necessary. What a marvel, what a wonder! - t.k.

The considerations in the beginning phase of The Work such as The 4 Noble Truths, or Emptiness, are only 'understood' when they become seamless parts of the dynamic system called 'one's life.' They are not merely intellectual - they are to be inhabited, to become embodied experience and part of the experience of embodiment. Same for Ngondro, Three Samadhis etc.... - t.k.
